I would definitely recommend this laptop, but I suggest you don't charge it while you use it lest it get bumped and then not charge. I had to send it back to Lenovo under their warranty, and Newegg is going to be doing it *again* under their extended...

Great except battery issues

 

Screen, graphics, speed, I enjoyed most everything about this laptop, and still do (when plugged in)

Viewing angles aren't the best, sometimes the graphics card doesn't kick in, if the software (game) doesn't require it, so you have to force it ; I started having the "unauthorized battery" issue, that is on many Lenovo forums. It's the stock battery,...

Piece of crapola

 

I'll write one when I find one

my Dell Studio finally crapped out and I needed a laptop for my new business. I researched a lot and found this...refurbished. I bought the Dell refurbished and it lasted 7 years...and the only thing that's failed, and not worth fixing, is the power...

Lenovo Fail.

 

I purchase for a small business of ~120 people and I also consult and I used to recommend Lenovo devices as they were high quality at great prices but this one failure and the tech support after finished that for me. Like all companies I generally rate...

Great Specs

Terrible device. Graphics issues, wifi isues, driver issues abound. I have purchased Lenovo for years and never received a worse device. Tech support zero help. Advised to reset device and reinstall everything. After doing so (For second time as this...

Laptop came as specced, powerful, nice screen, maybe 2-3 hours use unplugged

Refurbished PowerColer AXR7 250

 

This laptop has ran great even being refurbished. The only hiccup I ran into it was the battery. When I first turned it on, Lenovo's "Energy Manager" software was stating my battery was unauthorized and I had to replace it with a official Lenovo...

Clean design, back-lit keyboard, not a ton of bloatware (but some), two display adapters, blu-ray drive, clean screen, webcam, forward facing speakers that are decent sounding

Little bigger than current/next generation laptops, but still portable, plastic around the keyboard, the the lid is aluminum, headphone jack is on the right side (where you would have a mouse possibly) prefer to have headphone jacks either in the front...
